superposition Free

Scio nescio omnia scire. Superposition: In any network with two or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical or electrical network results in the summation (a compromise) and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. ¶Neither pure iron nor pure carbon are stronger than a carbon steel alloy. ¶Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. ¶A sensible solution for our persistent problems could be arrived at through the superposition of conservative and progressive ideologies as the founders had hoped for, but the puppet masters have taken control of our representatives to get their desires fulfilled at the expense of the republic. ¶My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. I try very hard to understand and listen to all views on an issue and am willing to change my mind if the evidence is real and conclusive. ¶John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." ¶"I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796 ¶If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed. - Mark Twain ¶An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. - Benjamin Franklin ¶None of Us is as Good as All of Us. -- Ray Kroc

    Good thing we have a proactive, collaborative congress that likes to get things done on time and anticipates changes ….

    · A new report, Towards a Reskilling Revolution: A Future of Jobs for All, finds that, with 1.4 million US jobs alone expected to disrupted by technology and other factors between now and 2026, of which 57% belong to women, a huge effort is needed to safeguard workers from the Fourth Industrial Revolution

    · The positive finding from the report is that with adequate reskilling, 95% of the most immediately at-risk workers would find good-quality, higher-wage work in growing job families

    · Without reskilling, only 2% of workers would have an optimal opportunity to transition to new jobs – while 16% would have none at all

    · Report highlights the urgent need for a massive reskilling programme, safety nets to support workers while they reskill, and support with job-matching

    Really bad things happen when you try to impose your alt-reality ideology on the real world and it just doesn’t make sense.

    But who exactly will the first trillionaire be? Most estimates suggest Microsoft founder Bill Gates is the most likely candidate. Already the world’s richest man, Gates has an estimated personal fortune of £72 billion, with The Times noting that “if US national wealth grows at the rate it has in recent decades and if the richest few continue to increase their share of it, [Gates] is on track to hit the target in old age.”

    Billionaire wealth has risen by an annual average of 13 percent since 2010 – six times faster than the wages of ordinary workers, which have risen by a yearly average of just 2 percent. The number of billionaires rose at an unprecedented rate of one every two days between March 2016 and March 2017.

    It takes just four days for a CEO from one of the top five global fashion brands to earn what a Bangladeshi garment worker will earn in her lifetime. In the US, it takes slightly over one working day for a CEO to earn what an ordinary worker makes in a year.

    It would cost $2.2 billion a year to increase the wages of all 2.5 million Vietnamese garment workers to a living wage. This is about a third of the amount paid out to wealthy shareholders by the top 5 companies in the garment sector in 2016.

    Dangerous, poorly paid work for the many is supporting extreme wealth for the few. Women are in the worst work, and almost all the super-rich, nine out of ten, are men.

    Maybe we’d have a better congress if the children of representatives caught doing something illegal/unethical were punished for their parents offenses by deportation or loss of access to healthcare?

    Are we absolutely certain that a mutually exclusive, two opposing party system is the best way to run a government … (i.e.) better that a collaborative effort?

    The Republican Party, of course, is also the one led by a president who doesn’t know enough about policy to negotiate on his own behalf. Everyone was able to see that two weeks ago during a televised White House meeting, when other Republicans had to correct President Trump — gently and awkwardly — about what he was supposed to believe. Trump, as The Washington Post reported this weekend, is “clearly not understanding the policy nuances of the negotiation.”
